Thanks dude,

I'm on HSD HRs with Megan Upper negative camber arms. I'm looking to grab the full megan rear arm setup soon to get more adjustability.

My fenders have been pulled really aggressively around all 4 corners and my front fenderliner has been trimmed to prevent rubbing. The only problem i have at the moment has to do with my ride height. i'm a little too low and the the upper negative arm hits the strut tower whenever i dampen. currently i'm remedying the problem by maxing out my preload and running on max stiff, but i have to grind off the corners of the arm to rid myself of the contact patch.

Time to put this piggy on a diet & boost it.
Right now with me in it it's 3500lbs and 200whp.
I want to shed 500-600lbs and make 500-550whp.
Then maybe it wont be so much work to do this...

front-Figs hy-steer, tie rod ends, rack bushings
rear- all Figs arms
all the stock goodies, 255/40-17 all around, and teh stuff in my sig.

coilovers have adjustability. you can adjust how soft or hard the shock is and height. some have more adjustments than others. you can drift on pretty much anything but its alot easier not using stock shocks and by the time you repplace 4 shocks and 4 springs you might as well have got a set of adjustable shocks and springs.

The limits of angle are related to the front control arm and leading caster arm. I will be working on this more seriously in coming months.

Just as Mike (Fig) has stated, the issues are the front control arm and castor arm. We will be working on maximizing steering angle out of the IS300 soon enough. Just keep watching for updates.

yoteru: Yes you can run URAS steering angle spaces with the Hysteer pieces cause that is what I am running currently until we get a proto type front lca together for more angle.
